APPLICATION FOR SITE
Before submitting an Exhibitor Site Application, exhibitors (particularly staff who will be attending the event) are requested to carefully read all YP Field Days conditions and Exhibitor information requirements as outlined in this Prospectus.
The YP Field Days committee and administration reserves the right to refuse to accept any application for a site from any exhibitor without assigning any reason for such refusal.
All applications must be submitted on the Exhibitor Site Application and allocations will only be made on receipt of this Application. Enquiries via telephone will not be accepted as a site application; neither site allocations nor bookings will be made in this manner. Every effort will be made to accommodate site application requests for the YP Field Days event, however an application to attend as an exhibitor does not necessarily guarantee a site allocation or booking. Please note that site preference will be given to agriculturally focused companies and that our General Interest section is limited.
Please do NOT send any payment with your Site Application. A YP Field Days Tax Invoice will be sent once a site allocation has been made, however the site booking and allocated site number will not be confirmed until receipt of the exhibitor’s full payment by the due date specified on your YPFD Tax Invoice. Sites for which payment is not received by the deadline date of 5.00pm on the second Friday in August during the year of the event, cannot be guaranteed, nor can inclusion in the Official Programme and Directory.
Failure to pay for the site in full by the due date may result in the site being re-allocated. Companies/exhibitors will not be permitted access to their sites until full payment of their total site fees has been received and confirmed.
All exhibitors must pay an administration fee of $66.00 (GST incl.)
LISTING OF COMPANIES and SITE SHARING
It is essential that exhibitors provide all details regarding their product and the full details of ALL other companies or persons displaying on, or sharing, their site. The information also enables the YP Field Days committee to be aware of all exhibitors on site and direct general enquiries accordingly.
This information will be listed in our “Official Programme and Directory” as published by our Major Sponsor Yorke Peninsula Country Times.
Where an exhibitor has one or more companies present on their site that are not part of their core business, then a site sharer fee must be paid by each additional company sharing the site. All exhibitors sharing a site must be included on the Exhibitor Site Application. It is essential to list all other exhibitors on your site or, if required, included as an attachment. This assists us with exhibitor listings and advertising and reduces enquiries to the Administration Office during the field days.

All exhibitors on a site shall comply with the YP Field Days conditions, policies and requirements, including Public Liabilities Insurance.
